The amount of Britons booking holidays to Florida took a nose dive just after the turn of the new century, as USA immigration officials made entry to the USA a difficult and time-consuming experience to any non-residents in the wake of the appalling September 11th terrorist attacks.

Indeed, this warm climate makes it the ideal place to relax by the sea. With 15-miles of white-sand beaches, Miami is a sun-worshipper's paradise. The area of 'Miami Beach', although technically a separate city to Miami itself, has been one of the USA's most famous beach resorts for over 100 years, and is also home to South Beach, a glamorous and historical art-deco district that is world-renowned for its nightclubs, beaches and shopping.

Travelers visiting Miami may actually spend their time in Miami Beach, a separate municipality situated 4 miles (6 km) across Biscayne Bay from downtown Miami. The combined greater Miami area includes several ethnic neighborhoods such as Little Havana and Little Haiti.

If you are taking your family to Miami, the kids will find entertainment at the Miami Children's Museum and the Miami Seaquarium. The Miami Children's Museum has interactive exhibits to provide entertainment and educate. All ages will enjoy a visit to the Miami Seaquarium, where visitors can swim with the dolphins and view a selection of marine wildlife. So when you plan your trip to Miami, remember that the kids would also love it, as it is a great holiday destination that caters for the old and young.

Miami visitors are offered a range of hotels, resorts and vacation rentals to satisfy all tastes and budgets. Ranging from the fanciful restored boutique hotels of the Art Deco district, the modern high rises of glass and steel, beach front condominiums and villas, serviced suites, budget hostels, inns and guesthouses, there's accommodation and prices to suit everyone.

The popular Miami Metrozoo, occupying over 290 acres (130 ha), transports visitors on a mono-rail. One of the feature of this zoo, located about 45 minutes from central Miami, is the absence of animal enclosures. The animals are contained by carefully designed moats. The petting zoo and play area makes this a popular attraction for younger children.

Log on to and you'll find everything that you need for Miami city break.
